RFC2544 field test
RFC2544 standard is intended to assess different parameters usually included in service-level agreements (SLA) from network service provider to corporate customers. By completed RFC2544 testis, the service provider can confirm that working parameters of offered Ethernet connection complies to SLA expectations.
• PPC-10G throughput tests determined the maximum rate of 9999,6 Mbps for 64 bytes frames to 9294.7 Mbps for 9600 bytes frames, both at L1 level. This measurement translates the obtained rate into the available bandwidth of the service.
• Latency tests brought 50 μs (microseconds) for 64 bytes frames to 84 μs for 9600 bytes frames. Latency parameter is critical for VoIP services, and latency values over 5 ms (milliseconds) cause degradation in voice quality.
